The annual “Kids Count” report was released last week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and it ranked Florida 37th out of 50 states in overall child well-being. Especially dismal was Florida’s child poverty rate – Florida ranked 45th in the nation in that category.
But 90.7’s economic analyst Hank Fishkind tells Nicole Creston he believes Florida’s child poverty rates are lower than the one-in-four average that appears in the study. He says the details are deep in the data.
